BSD/OS

Post by dank101 »

I was browsing though the FTP server of a blog I like to read, and I found 3 copies of BSD/OS, all of which are installation disks!

BSD/OS 4.01: https://mega.co.nz/#!0xI3SBRA!aT4dydwyj ... Vyafv3-HVE
BSD/OS 4.3: https://mega.co.nz/#!cxgijCwY!erJSXn0bs ... sSl8fQSGtU
BSD/OS 4.1: https://mega.co.nz/#!9tYHmJ7Z!Fd5y63MEN ... F8clSCJ9Hs

None of them work on VirtualBox. At all.
I have yet to try on QEMU or VMware.

What is that FTP? I'd be interested in browsing it as well :)
I upload stuff to archive.org from time to time. See here for everything that doesn't fit BA

Hm I can see 4.1, 4.3 and 4.01 there, but not 5.x, my request was for 5.x; I used to have a 5.0 iso, but I lost it many years ago.

That was the FTP others were asking for.

BSD OS is a real unix,it derived from original Unix bell labs,but developed on Berkeley university,with some difference(init,c shell as default shell,vi),as i know the first tcp/ip implementation run on BSD and windows port the stack for windows 2000.
From BSD derived FREEBSD,NETBSD,Openbsd
A nice and good piece of history,it can run on simh-emulator,sadly network cause some problems at least on my linux host.

If I recall, 5.x was a pretty big leap from 4.x. Added lots of drivers, USB support, tons of contrib. I was able to download 4.3 and 4.1. Hopefully they'll work in bochs, qemu, virtualbox, or vmware. 2.0, which I have somewhere in my SOHO closet doesn't work on anything but a real 286/386.

yeah 5.0 was very usable; even on modern hardware.

Besides OS itself, does anybody have a kernel source of last versions? 4.x or 5.x? I remember it was released for owners.
